And I know it may be inconsistent on my part, but so be it.

So I watch Philly Sports Talk and hear ES Parks rate the Eagles chances at a 2 or 3 (of 10) of making the playoffs.

Barkowitz and Clark don't seem all that enthusiastic about the chances either.

Then I tune in to Quick Slants and hear RF's buddy Roob, poo poo the Eagles chances as does Gunner.

Now Roob, Gunner and ESP are all paid to follow the Eagles and they don't think there's much of a prayer.

They all talk about putting the Kid in when we start out 1-4 or 2-5.

Who died and crowned the Giants, Skins or Cowboys a good team.

Fuck them!!

Win the division or not, we better be damn close to winning it with those three teams.

They go on and on about the Giants.

The same Giants who lost twice to us last year in convincing fashion.

Fuck them.

And the Skins? Did they finally beat a team with a wining record last year?

Cousins? Ooh, I'm scared.

And you know me and the Cowboys.

Fuck them and the horse they rode in on.

And one other thing.

The Eagles damn well better be a playoff team.

Lord knows they got paid like one.

If this highly compensated team doesn't perform, heads should roll.

When this Cox deal gets included in the numbers, Uncle Jeffrey would have paid more money than anybody this year.

Kudos to him.

As a fan I appreciate the effort.

And those players better show their appreciation every week.

There's a lot of money paid out for potential. (Cox excluded).

They better come to play and come to play well.

I am with you completely

I here these douche bags slobber over some players and the Eagles need to do this or do that and then they say the Eagles suck....

I am tired of them killing Bradford...the biggest reason is because he blows off Gunn and Roob. I am tired of them slobbering over Cox (literally in some cases) because he returns Gunn's texts. That is how these guys roll...if a player talks to them they pump him up....Roob did it with Shady to the point where he hid his indiscretions, even denied them for him.

Parks is another clown....he is such apoor excuse for a reporter....he makes Les Bowen look stellar...by the way....so much fun to listen to these guys rip each other...lol

For a team that shelled out a ton of money they better win now...

Don't forget where we were 6 months ago.

If Howie and J Lurie did not take strong actions to stabilize the sinking ship, FAs might have abandoned ship like we saw after Buddy Ryan was fired.

J Lurie overpaid to protect his core talent and Howie seems to have done a nice job plugging holes with mid priced FAs.

Overpaying for talent and depth at the most important position clearly says to the team that they value Ws and are willing to pay for them. They have a solid veteran QB for a year or two, a solid backup veteran and a highly touted rookie for the future.

They finished off their impressive, but very expensive offseason by taking care of their best player.

Clearly they've stabilized the ship. I have no delusions about the overall talent and situation with the team. They have new coaches with new systems. Players have to get used to each other.

This can't go smoothly enough for them to win the division without all three other teams suffering major setbacks.

I don't see it as inconsistent at all on your part.

To give them some slack, they're all probably reacting to their over-positive predictions the past two years and the huge question of HC. I keep saying it, the key to this season is DP and if he can inspire and coach. The team is like most teams, they have talent and holes. Can the coach disguise the holes and capitalize the talent?

Just stumbled on it one day after about my 10,000th depressing argument with a young bandwagoner who thought Jerry Jones was a genius, classy guy, and the best thing to ever happen to Dallas. You guys were solid Eagle fans, but also good football fans who could talk on that level too. It was a.....refreshing change. cool.gif
